The Sky Today, December 1, 2022

At 12:42 a.m.: The moon is square Mars

After midnight, the Pisces moon squares off with retrograde Mars in Gemini, prompting us to make irrational choices. We believe we are judging a situation accurately, when in truth, we’re extra-sensitive to small and even imagined slights. This causes us to respond to fictional threats in largely unconscious ways. The assumption that we must defend ourselves through speech may be premature. Keep this in mind before acting or reacting. 

At 5:08 p.m.: Mercury is square Neptune

In the late afternoon, Mercury in Sagittarius squares off with Neptune in Pisces, exacerbating the day’s erratic energy. This is a transit of poor judgment calls. Contractual affairs should be avoided outright. There are likely to be loopholes or vague verbiage that cause us to think we’re agreeing to one thing when we are signing on to something quite different.  Yet, while we are perhaps more susceptible to manipulation tactics now, given both planets squaring in optimistic, Jupiter-ruled signs, the real enemy is our tendency toward self-deception. We want to believe! The desire to have our biases confirmed places us in a vulnerable position.
